Realistic Flight Dynamics
Our models have an authentic feeling while exploring the virtual world, thanks to Laminar Research for developing a fantastic flight sim.
4k Physically Based Rendering Textures
4k PBR textures, or physically based rendering, provides realistic lighting that mimics the flow of light in the real world. Our models take full advantage of X-Plane’s lighting with dynamic reflections and materials.
Custom 3D Modeled Instruments
Everyone loves a detailed and realistic looking cockpit. After all, that is where we spend most of our time in the sim, flying! Our models come with custom 3D instruments developed to a high standard with extensive custom coding to make them as realistic as possible.
Paint Kits & Liveries
Each model comes with several liveries and we also include detailed paint kits. The kits are provided in both GIMP and Adobe® Photoshop® formats. A UV map layer included in each file allows for easy and accurate repaints.
Animation & Sound
Each model boasts a fully immersive dynamic sound set developed with FMOD. Sounds and animations work together with visual rotor-speed vibrational feedback, rattling, shaking, dynamic blade slap, rain effects and more.
Vibrant and Detailed Night Lighting
X-Plane has wonderful night lighting. Our projects aim to have plenty of lights, inside and out, making night flights possible. From the landing lights to the cabin lighting, these helicopters really stand out at night.
